Free time in a calming place
The wonderful park Planten un Blomen is equally popular among Hamburgers and visitors to go for a walk, relax, and be fascinated by the beauty of nature.
Every year, it’s a highlight for the whole family to attend the water fountain shows or the atmospheric water-light concerts that are performed on the park lake throughout the summer months. From 01.05.2015 till 04.10.2015, there will be water fountain shows each day at 2 pm, 4 pm, and 6 pm. On sundays and public holidays, the 2 pm show will take place with music, otherwise silently.
Tip: I would recommend to go to the water light concerts (also daily) in the evening hour because it is even more impressive when the fountains shine colorfully illuminated in the dark. From 01.05.2015 till 31.08.2015 at 10 pm and from 01.09.2015 till 04.10.2015 at 9 pm.
If you are traveling with children or just like to play, you may want to visit the playground in the park, or join some locals for a game of mini-golf or “oversized” chess. There are also cafes where you can enjoy a coffee, beer or icecream before you continue your time wandering around in Planten un Blomen.
Oct – Mar 07:00 – 20:00 | Apr 07:00 – 22:00 | May – Sep 07:00 – 23:00
Entrance is free and you will find the closest entrance next to the public transport stations Hamburg Dammtor (S-bahn) or Stephansplatz (U-bahn).
